foreign policy. they're also making a major push with undecided voters in key swing state including florida, ohio, and virginia. joining me from arlington, virginia, john harris, editor in chief of politico. i am pleased to have him here. john, let me begin with the question of your headline today in your politico column saying, debate gets to the guts of the race." what are the guts of the race? >> guts of the race, i think, are two very different candidate, two very different personalities, placing fundamentally different cases about what they want from voters and what they would do if voters give them power. when i say we got to the guts of the race, i mean, to some extent we got away from theater criticism. denver was dramatic, but it was all about the president's performance. what was wrong? was the altitude up there in the rocky mountains? too high? was he too cocky? was he somehow just off his game. it was all stylistic and stylistic performance is an important part of debates.
